Querrey, who defeated Nishikori 6-3, 6-4 yesterday, continued his title defense with a 7-5 (6), 5-7, 6-3 win over Schuettler today in Queens. That’s the 2nd match in a row that Sam has won since…forever?
Actually, it was the first time since Indian Wells. I am surprised by that fact too, but he beat Tipsy (6-4, 6-4) and Verdasco (7-5, 6-4). Really! I know, I wouldn’t believe me either, here’s the link.
Querrey should have faced Stan Wawrinka in the next round. But Stan lost to…James Ward? A British tennis player who is not Andy Murray? In other words, a minor miracle from the tennis gods?!?!
Do not throw away waste their gift, Sammy! If the tennis gods want a title defense, and you best deliver! So stop wasting break point opportunities and shouting “Gosh” when you drive your backhand into the net (Thanks @appleaddicto for that live on-court tid-bit)!
You won this tournament last year because you were similarly gifted a draw of dreams! I know you do not remember this, but winning titles is quite fun. And this is a 250! You’ve so got this.
So yeah, don’t screw up. Please and thank you.
